I took 2 tbspoons and nothing. The next day I took two more. Nothing!! Should I give it one more go?

And seriously no negative comments. I'm just asking a question.

If it hasn't worked, then isn't that a good indication that your baby isn't ready? Just wait!!!

ABSOLUTELY NOT. It is dangerous, for one, and for another, if you are not in labor that means your baby is NOT ready to be born.

I know it's hard. Trust me. I went 44 weeks with my eldest, and 42 with my youngest. If you're not at 40 weeks, and you're not having contractions, RELAX.

Patience is a virtue. I know you've heard this, but it's NEVER more applicable than right now. If you can't have the patience to get through these last couple of weeks, how are you going to last for the 18 years that it takes to raise a child to adulthood?

You'll be just fine. Baby will arrive when it's time.

No castor oil is VERY dangerous. You are lucky it did nothing the first two times as it could have put both your life and your baby's at risk. If you are needing to be induced then your doc will do so in a safe manner. If he is not doing so then there is a reason.

No. It can be very dangerous. Speak to your doctor/midwife about having your membranes swept. How far along are you? It may just not be time.
